“Luck is what happens when preparation meets opportunity”-Seneca

“Kindness is the language that the deaf can hear and the blind can see.”- Mark Twain

“The best way for us to cultivate fearlessness in our daughters and other young women is by example. If they see their mothers and other women in their lives going forward despite fear, they’ll know it’s possible.”- Gloria Steinem

“Self-deception operates both at the level of the individual mind, & in the collective awareness of the group. To belong to a group of any sort, the tacit price of membership is to agree not to notice one’s own feelings of uneasiness & misgiving, & certainly not to question anything that challenges the group’s way of doing things. The price for the group in this arrangement is that dissent, even healthy dissent, is stifled! In order to break through the cocoons of silence that keep vital truths from the collective awareness you need courage. It is the courage to seek the truth & to speak it that can save us from the narcotic of self-deception. It is a paradox of our time that those with power are too comfortable to notice the pain of those who suffer, & those who suffer have no power. To break out of this trap requires the courage to speak truth to power!”-Daniel Goleman

“I know that most men, including those at ease with problems of greatest complexity, can seldom accept even the simplest and most obvious truth if it be such as would oblige them to admit the falsity of conclusions which they have delighted in explaining to colleagues, which they have proudly taught to others, and which they have woven, thread by thread, into the fabric of their lives.”- Leo Tolstoy

“The only way to deal with an unfree world is to become so absolutely free that your very existence is an act of rebellion.”― Albert Camus

“Hatred eats the soul of the hater, not the hated.”- Alice Herx-Sommer, World’s Oldest Holocaust Survivor

“The greatest gift is the passion for reading.It is cheap, it consoles, it distracts, it excites, it gives you knowledge of the world and experience of a wide kind.It is a moral illumination.”-Elizabeth Hardwick
